    And get my license in 8 days! The truck is 100% paid for (by me).
    I think it will look real sharp when I can afford to have it lettered (looks good now IMO). It was recently painted and re-upholstered (vinyl).

    Sorry the camera lense was filthy from sitting in the garage (I know, a no-no :eek: )
    It looks really good in person :) no rust anywhere. I just washed it :)

    Not terribly bad for a first vehicle?

    Thanks :D
    Cos, I saw the post with the pic of your nose damage, what happened? Hope you're OK.
    Toroguy, I feel confident about the test :) I only missed one on the written and that was a dumb one I wasn't thinking or something LOL. I'm going to use our 12 pass. Ford van for the driving test unless I'm used to the truck enough by then, because I'm most used to the van. I hate cars, you can't see out of them and they don't have mirrors! LOL

    C'mon Frankn, with your injenuity, just weld a couple of Mack truck mirrors on Sis's Taurus!

    Im sure you'll do fine.

    Well we did have a '97 Plymouth Breeze but it got totaled. The other option is a '84 Mercury Cougar rust bucket that my dad uses to drive to work... not using it because the steering is way sloppy and the transmission jerks the car when you put it in gear and some of the interior's falling apart LOL but he likes it. The mirrors on this truck are gonna get replaced very soon with some big ones like on our van, I like them with a set of small spot mirrors in the corner, very nice with the trailer.

    keep both hands on the wheel and do not speed :D

    i failed my drivers test the first time cause i was speeding, i was so busy trying to do all the stupid stuff like stay in the right lane ... :rolleyes: and keep my hands on the wheel that i forgot to watch my speed. They guy said to me, "i can see you really know how to handle a vehicle, but you've got a slight speeding problem" it was game over from that point.

    Good luck with the truck and drivers test.
